Well, SWIG has come a long way. I think that at this time it supports
enough of C++ to comfortably wrap VTK (may not be ITK but surely VTK).
The only big problems I could think of would be getting the reference
counting done "right". However, the current VTK wrappers are good and
work well. So, it isn't broke, why fix it? However, SWIG-VTK would
probably make for an interesting and fun summer project.
